 Batad, Banaue, Ifugao
 

For four days, we trekked up and down four of Ifugao's Rice Terraces. It was not an easy feat for someone as unfit for me but those buckets I've sweated we're all worth it; I now consider Ifugao on my top three destinations in the country along with Batanes and Coron.

 C A F E   A N T O N I O
 Dumaguete City, Central Visayas
 
 
We arrived at Dumaguete City in one piece after the rumble and tumble of a ferry ride from the island of Siquijor. Still queasy from the roiling sea, we set out for a late lunch.     
 
Choosing  blindly amongst the many food places we listed down, our fingers fell  on Café Antonio. Good thing we already saw it on our way to the hotel so  we didn’t have to sweat it out in locating it.

Dumaguete City has always been tagged as a campus town; they say the  atmosphere is laid back and very relaxed. My mind was already picturing  long rows of trees, blankets of grass, lots of benches, pavilions,  arcades and hardly any motorized traffic.     
 
Boy was I  wrong. Dumaguete City is nothing but laid back. The streets are busy  with vehicles roaring in between avenues of tall buildings.

 Dumaguete City, Central Visayas
 
 
I tried to peek out from our hotel window and the sky was frowning. It was drizzling and the heavens was painted in a dark shade of grey. Taking my chances, as I really have no other to catch a sunrise in Dumaguete City, I packed my cameras and went down the desolate streets.
 
Named  after the country’s National Hero, it was said that Jose Rizal briefly  visited the shoreline of Dumaguete before proceeding to his exile in  Dapitan. The stretch has now become a favorite hang-out of locals,  especially since its proximity to the food places in the city. At night,  a portion of the boulevard transforms into a streetfood mecca of sorts  complete with chairs and tables.

Dumaguete City, Central Visayas

We got lost in Dumaguete looking for an oddly named food place. Qyosko which I gather is a play on the word kiosk is not the easiest thing to ask a tricycle driver to locate and we got dropped twice on the wrong restaurant. I guess third try’s a charm and we finally found the 24-hour diner tucked in one of the less busier part of the city.

Dumaguete City, Central Visayas

The city of Dumaguete has its own share of historic structures and one of these is the St. Catherine of Alexandria Church or more popularly known as the Dumaguete Cathedral.

Located far on the church’s left side is its old bell tower, the Campanario de Dumaguete, one of the four watchtowers that once dotted the city. It was once used as a warning device against marauding Moro invaders in the 1700’s. The circular tower is made of coral stones with a pentagonal bell house topped with a red dome.

Dumaguete City, Central Visayas

“You’re going off to Dumaguete? Don’t forget to try their sans rival and bring home some silvanas too!” That seems to be the tag line for someone off to see the Land of the Gentle People and we’re not exempted. I’m really not a lover of sweets but the fervor for this certain Sans Rival in Dumaguete was such that I was wont to try it, well, at least just once.

Dumaguete City, Central Visayas

Dumaguete City usually is the jump-off point for Siquijor, Apo Island and Bais City. But the city has also its own little secrets that can be explored in a day or two. Here’s a run-down of the places we visited in the City of Gentle People.

Lagawe, Ifugao, Cordillera Region

It was a hard fight to catch my ticket to Ifugao.     
   
The night before, I got an invite from PHILTOA to join their Ifugao Heritage Warrior Caravan Run as part of the media group. I have a scheduled shoot somewhere in Ayala on the date of departure and I have only three hours to spare to hurry back home, pack, have dinner and leave for the rendezvous point.

Banaue, Ifugao, Cordillera Region

The morning mist was trying to envelop the mountains of Banaue as we alighted from our ten-hour bus trip from Manila. We were welcomed with warm glasses of lemon grass tea by a hotel staff dressed in traditional Ifugao garb as we entered the lobby of the Banaue Hotel.

Banaue, Ifugao, Cordillera Region

The cold midday breeze blasting through our faces was not telling of the current time; it was almost twelve noon yet it felt like it was six in the morning. We were on roof of a jeepney, zigzagging up the Nueva Vizcaya-Ifugao-Mountain Province road on our way to the famous Banaue viewpoints in Ifugao.
